Invasive grass around pond margin

Posted: 18/10/2016 at 10:08

But what would you do about the holes?  

Are you sure that the grass has pierced the liner and isn't just spreading across the surface and rooting down into the sludge?

Obelixx - I keep a bottle of Vermouth handy for sweating down onions or adding to a recipe which needs some alcohol but I don't have any leftover wine (who does?) and I don't want to open a fresh bottle.

That's a good thought Berghill - particularly as the poster says there's a lot on the roots - although I've never seen the waxy stuff coming to the surface as in his photo - but then I've never seen a really bad infestation ... fingers crossed.

I'd like to know what the plant is - it looks very much like a daffodil to me, from what we can see .........  a bulb of some sort anyway, so likely to die down and regrow each year

Good luck BL - hope you get a diagnosis and better still, a plan of action 

Sounds like you and I have a similar problem.  We'll have to give it a name - that well known condition - Forkers' Shoulder

And if damsons aren't available then Raspberry Vodka is an interesting alternative and doesn't need so long to mature.

It looks to me like a perfectly normal fungus breaking down organic matter in the soil. What sort of plant is it and where is it growing?

Good morning all 

Amazing pink sky this morning - Shepherds warning!  Dentist for a checkup this morning then we're planning to visit an arts centre in Suffolk. They have a little cafe so that's lunch taken care of. 

I planted pots of Narc. Minnow yesterday with asmall leaved variegated ivy on the top. 

I've still got a few empty pots ... I might have to get some more bulbs ....
